This may seem like dumb question but since I've never seen one, exactly how do you load the OA with the conversion cylinder for regular shells. Does the end with the firing pins hook onto or just sit on the end of the cylinder on top of the shells when you put it back in the gun.Also I've heard about using cowboy ammo but what about regular factory ammo that Win, Rem and Federal puts out(not +P).

Here is a link to a picture of one, so you will better understand what I am gonna say:

You will notice that they cylinder has a removable back to it. The cylinder must be removed from the gun, the back taken off the cylinder, and then loaded, the back put back on, and then the cylinder put back in the gun. Pretty tedious. Here is a link to a John Taffin article where he shoots the Old Army with the conversion cylinder in place. The link should take you to page 3 of the article, so you might want to start at the begining.

Gunman, thanks for the reply. Pretty close to what I thought. I see the pin it uses. That's what I wondered about. I've been kicking the idea around of getting one and the idea of using both powder and ball and cartridges appeals to me. Sharp looking revolver.
